Why Alexa Chung's Future of Fashion series is the thing to watch....

Now I'll admit I've been a big fan of Alexa Chung since she first came onto the scene on Popworld. It was nice to see someone who could freely be a bit goofy and not care! But her career into the fashion world from model to...well complete icon developed alongside my budding love for style, fashion and my education into all of this.
Two years after I graduated from my Fashion Promotion degree at 25 years of age I am yet to establish my career but have solidly established my look. I may be known as someone who owns far too many pinafores and can't help but add a bit of a 60's flare to my look with excessive frills and short short mini skirts but my taste is one thing in my life that I am confident about.
Don't get me wrong, not the way I look...not my hair, my body anything like that but I know what I like and I like it no matter what.
So as I slowly fall into the panic of what am I doing with my life, I turned to Alexa and British Vogue.

Things that should have stayed on Pinterest

Everybody loves Pinterest, especially creatives. We can search for inspiration for everything from food to how to decorate our homes. But lets face it, there are some things that should be seen on Pinterest and Pinterest only.

Now, this is going to cause a flurry of people to have a go I'm sure but I haven't posted for a while and I think its because I've kind of lost interest in 99% of things that I had in my life a few months ago.
In the last 12 months I have a dramatic change in my friends, my job (I actually have one I like) my living situation, my financial situation (thats got worse) but one thing that...for the first time in a long time I realised was that I was starting to be alright with myself. By that I mean I was ok getting dressed in the morning and looking in the mirror thinking "Alright lets do this"
In my typical style however this was short lived.
After seeing one badly angled picture of myself and hearing a slightly off par comment about how I once looked I immediately felt myself plummet into a realm of "God I'm so fat." "When did this happen?!" "Thats why I'm single" "My clothes are horrible" "Im never going to g…
